  • recording
  • use cloud based free version |  good accessibility
  • not plug and play; everything has python script behind it

  • different problem solved (rather migration)
  • manage loads of data efficiently
  • Next steps: e.g. create a Slack channel wehre people can share tools and experiences
  • Questions 
    • could the work that has been done for FOLIO to work with Camunda be used for Prefect or Airflow as well?
    • the closer tools are tied to FOLIO the more accessible?
    • will hosts support it?
      • for Elastic Search/Open Search they did
      • not for LDP
    • FOLIO internal vs. external solution for workflows - is there a preference - what are the thoughts of the TC?
    • How progress workflow discussion → PC?
      • would need PO and dev team to make progress
      • Heather will reach out to TAMU on their plans on Camunda
